Hi Robt, yes there is a little trick if you can find a hex head bolt that fits the allen socket you can then attach two nuts to the bolt and use one of them as a jam nut and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Honda but despair not for a mere $15.00 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: to charge the battery on a Honda Shadow VT 600

Hi there,
It is always a good idea to remove a battery from any machine when charging. If it is a lead acid type, Hydrogen gas is given off when charging, and all it takes is a spark(when working with the connections)... and then there is a fire/explosion... and this could go badly for you. I have seen this happen in a brand new car.
If you are prepared to risk it, the least, you need to do is fully disconnect the battery. However, I strongly recommend removing the battery for charging. That way you are working safe,and doing the charge devoid of risk. Happy to answer any questions you may have about this. Cheers
regards robotek

SOURCE: how do you remove baffles out of the bike

On my 1998 I cut old muffler off. Inside I found smaller pipes. I could remove the baffles. So I order the same size pipe as the out side pipe from JEGS. Welded it over the smaller pipe. Has a nice tone and now getting better MPG. Hope this helps. My HD friends will not ride on my right. They say it's to loud.

How to remove the seat of a honda shadow vt600c

There are two screws located beneath the seat on the left and right side of the bike. Look at the space in between the passenger's seat and the saddle with a light. You will need an allen wrench with a little bit of length.

I have a 1996 Honda VLX 600 Shadow. How do I take the front tire off?!?

First thing is to prop the bike up on a motorcycle jack or some other jack-If yo have a a motorcycle jack that has eyelets on the frame strap the front end down, this will eliminate the steering to flop around while you are working on. If you still have your tool set their is a tool that you can use if not you would need to purchase a 17MM allen wrench (I think). First their is two capped allen screws that will need to be loosened (not so much taken off) with one of the supplied allen wrenches in your kit or a 5mm allen wrench should do the trick. The front axel just screws in to the other fork-after you start removing the axel take stock which spacer/speedo gear goes where. The speedo cable can be removed from the gear by removing the phillips head screw. The front tire and rotor should just slide down with out to much trouble.

How do i install saddlebags on a 2007 honda shadow vlx vt600?

I've got a 2007 Shadow and recently put on a set of saddlebags. What you do is use a large allen wrench or star wrench on the seat strap to take out those two bolts, and then you slide the seat towards the back of the bike (or perhaps you need to slide it to the front, I forget, its just the "picture-hanging" connection, <=0 is the shape of the hole on the seat, and on the bike beneath it is a peg, with the seat hole large enough to slide the peg through, but once you shift the seat to its natural position the head of the peg is at a place too narrow to come off, hence the sliding motion to remove it) . Then it is smooth sailing, just lay your saddlebags over the peg with the seat removed, and try and put the seat back without disrupting the bags too much, which can be hard since its a pretty snug fit. Hopefully that helped, I don't know if the request was talking about post market support frames or something
